Tennis pros Andy Murray and Roger Federer played a match for charity in Glasgow last night.
Despite the home advantage, Murray lost to Federer 6-3 3-6 10-6.
Federer, the world number two, tweeted throughout his Scottish visit and spoke of the warm welcome he had received.
Tweeting a picture of a tin of homemade shortbread and a can of Irn Bru, Federer said “Can’t get a warmer welcome than this. Thanks @andy_murray … is this your usual pre-match routine?”
The Scot replied: “Yea that’s a good start but try a deep fried Mars bar on top of that and you’ll be properly ready💪💪”

11,000 fans had flocked to the SSE Hydro in Glasgow to watch the match.
In an interview after the first set, Federer joked: “If anyone brings me a kilt, I will put it on.” When a fan appeared with one, he played the rest of the match in it.
Murray later on donned a tartan hat that he was given by his opponent.
The match was being played to raise money for Unicef and the Sunny-sid3up, a local charity in Govan.
